    Spurs will overtake us...

    As you know by now (unlike the likes of damien dodd, jkjk, rafalution, wellboy etc) i'm not one to sit on the fence and blindly pretend my club is doing well when clealy it is not. I'm also not one to make predictions, but on this occasion i have used my vast knowledge and understanding of the Premier League to make a bold statement for you all to ponder... SPURS will break into the top four next aeason and we will be the club they displace!

    Let me now clarify why. Firstly their strike department is vastly superior to ours with KEANE and BERBATOV as good as any pairing around. Dimitar has been awesome in his first season in the prem and will only get better. Keane is a true sniper and i would KILL to have either in our squad. With Defoe as back up i'm sure all true LFC fans will acknowledge they beat us hands down upfront. We can only hope tha Berby is lured to Anfield though i fear this is wishful thinking on our part as Spurs will be in the Champions League at our expense soon enough so why would he move.

    Goalkeeping - There's no doubt that Paul Robinson is a better keeper than Pepe Reina, who cannot even get a sniff at international level, and even though Robbo's howler against Croatia was bad he still delivers more regularily in the prem week in week out WITHOUT a solid defence to hide his failings like butterfingers Reina.

    Midfield - Yes we are strong in the middle but we don't have an Aaron Lennon in our side and with Spurs persuing a replacement for Carrick soon i can see Hotspurs competing with us in midfield by next season.

    Defence - our defence is solid but we have NO DEPTH. Once Spurs get Ledley King back and add some more solidity at the back with Chimbonda and Dawson clicking, again Spurs will be as good as us. Perhaps better!

    MANAGER - I love Martin Jol's style. He has personality (unlike the dull and boring Benetiz) and it shows in his attacking outward style on the pitch. Further to this he believes in nurturing BRITISH talent and for that i commend him. Nuff said about racist Rafa and his cheap foreign imports...

    Therefore as another embarrasing season in the PREM for us proves, SPURS will be in the top four next season and we will NOT! Under Rafa in the league we are only going backwards. 10 losses is UNACCEPTABLE!

    Now - let's see you fairweather fans DISCUSS

    • Talking to you, aiming it at him mate!

    • P&S if you started supporting spurs next year and Liverpool won the league would you come running back?

    • hahaha spurs will overtake us.. no way, i mean benitez iz alot better than jol and kuyt is better than keane,if we get torres we would have better attack than them,our midfield is the best in the premiership i think, gerrard alonso mascherano garcia... how could you say that their midfield is better,and for the defence they concede much more goals than us and i think carragher agger riise finnan...are better than king dawson and chimbonda. IF supus can overtake someone in the top 4 that will be arsenal i think....

    • Wellboy, was that aimed at me?

    • I think it's time to bump this thread back up following the awesome signing of DARREN BENT to Spurs. Again i will tell you that SPURS will overtake s in the EPL next season and with Bent they have hands down the best strikeforce in the league.

      I will also go on record as saying that after 30 years as a LFC supporter i am seriously considering a switch to SPURS as i am so disillusioned with the fat spaniard and his distruction of the club.

      Spurs have it all and i love the way they keep signing great BRITISH ALENT the way we used to.

      Kudos to Spurs... the only way is up!!

    • However, these are the signings made by Jol this season. Tell me if you can spot the pattern:

      Mido
      Chimbonda
      Berbatov
      Zokora
      Ghaly
      and
      Ben Alnwick.

      You see even Jol goes for foreign imports, not many nutured British names up there in that list. We have some good British potential - let's see if they're good enough to make it.



      Good point! Put's Rafa's 'racism' into perspective. If he's racist, then so was Joe Fagan, who had only 3 English players in his starting 11 for the '84 European Cup Final, and only 2 for the '85 final.

      They say about young players that if you're good enough then you're old enough. Age doesn't matter, and neither should nationality!

    • This guy must be a Manc...what a piss take. As a fans forum you should really have better things to do than try to whined up liverpool fans.
      Perhaps this chap is Jose is disguise! I'd suggest going back to the Manc, Chelski boards where you belong...its just boring.

      • As i feared it's the same old living in the past crapola from most of you. "Spurs haven't won the Prem". Well guess what... NOR HAVE WE! What we've done in the past is irrelevant to the NOW and while i see Spurs moving forward i see us going backward in the only competition that matters THE PREMIERSHIP.

        You don't seem to realise that RAFA and his scouting staff are incapable of spotting talent in the same league as BERBATOV, LENNON and KEANE and superb young BRITISH players like DAWSON and HUDDLESTONE, otherwise they'd be in our squad!

        Give your heads a shake and realise with TEN LOSSES this season we re nowhere ner mounting a challenge for the title. Most of you were saying we'd be rivalling CHELSEA this season and look what has happened. Under RAFA we will NEVER win the Prem and i promise you if we do you will never hear from me again.

        That's how confident i am we won't ;-)

    • Attack-yes Berbatov is class but Defoe i don't see the fuss given a decent run Bellamy is a better option.

      Goalkeeper-Reina before Robinson; i don't rate Robinson how he still gets picked for England is beyond me.

      Midfield-yes we need to recruit some depth on the flanks and the left side looks especially in need of re-inforcing.

      Defence-Again we need some depth but... Chimbonda!! Not my favourite shall we say.

      Manager-Martin Joll...i don't need 'personality and style' from a manager and Joll's tactical subs are up there with the worst.For my sins i have a good mate who supports Spurs and he goes ballistic at Joll 9/10 when he makes a substitution.The Asenal game being a specific example 1-0 up at half time bossing the game,Joll makes some subs hey presto 1-2 down and hanging on.

      Yes we need to buy and sell in the summer but would you honestly swap our position with Spurs? No DISSCUSS yes or no.....

    • Have to agree (on paper) about spurs strike force, although in reality they have scored the same goals as us. their midfield is nowhere near and they have conceded twice the number of goals than any of the current top four. They have picked up 7 pts from a possible 30 against teams above them in the league. My conclusion is that Martyn Jol has done an amazing job getting spurs to reach the absolute highest position they are capable of. Next season prediction 7th behind the big four, everton and A villa.

    • P&S why dont you just go and support them then and leave real fans to get on with the business of supporting LFC. Have Spurs ever even been in the CL?
